Manchester United have been embarrassing - Alan Shearer

"It's a good day for us and a good win that was much needed before the global break".

But a significant section of fans back Mourinho over the board who they also think are culpable for the current problems.

With rumours swirling that he is to be sacked irrespective of Manchester United's result against Newcastle United this weekend, Jose Mourinho made the curious decision to arrive at Old Trafford especially early ahead of today's game.

An animated Mourinho reacted with fury, screaming at his players and gesticulating wildly.

Substitute Sanchez then sent the crowd wild with delight when he headed in the victor in the 90th to end United's run of four games in all competitions without a victory.

Mourinho was relieved but still irritated by weeks of criticism.

"I'm amazed", said Mourinho when asked about their backing. Brexit, it´s my fault.

"In all my time in England, I don't remember any fragile Manchester United team". It is my life. I used to love it, I still love it, but it is different.

Leader Manchester City and second-place Liverpool meet on Sunday, the same day as Chelsea faces Southampton, and Arsenal plays London rival Fulham.

Barely three minutes later, it was Jonjo Shelvey who collected a throw-in, his cross beating Eric Bailly's half-hearted attempt to clear and landing at the feet of Yoshinori Muto who evaded Young before turning to beat David De Gea.

After several good chances, United equalised through Anthony Martial in the 76th minute before Alexis Sanchez provided the victor in the 90th. We think the fans deserve better.

"We know that to improve our position we need to win these three points", he confessed.

After seeing Man U's recent performances and lack of confidence and cohesion surely we have to go at them on Saturday and try to win the game #nufc.

"There is no reason we shouldn't be like that - the quality we have, which I've said in the past we have but we're not utilising".

The defeat leaves Newcastle second bottom in the Premier League, having taken just two points from their opening eight games, the club's worst start to a top-flight season.

Cardiff was reduced to 10 when Joe Ralls was sent off in the 58th minute at Wembley Stadium.
